The risk of parenthood ~
you will wear shirts with signs of spit up or food.....or both
you may sport bags under the eyes from little sleep.....
losing sleep as your baby wakes you with her hungry cries in the night and losing sleep as you wait for your child to come home at night
you may, no you WILL, love like you've never loved. Love that sometimes hurt.
you will cry when your child is in physical pain
you will cry when you watch your child struggle in making good choices
you will have to be strong even when you feel your legs begin to buckle
But the benefits so outweigh the risks.
smiles from your child will fill your heart with a radiating warmth
I love you, mama will be words you cherish most
the promise of a new life and joy that brings
a risk that I'd choose again and again
